Accessories: Front Rack Installation
Correctly installing a new bike rack is the first step to safely and efficiently hauling cargo. For example, if you have valuable goods sitting in a front rack that was poorly installed, you could cause serious injury to yourself or others.
Follow along using this guide:
- Remove the headlight using a 5mm allen wrench; the fender will subsequently detach. Reconnect the fender using the screw and washer that previously secured the headlight. Then unplug the cable connectors.
- Before installing the rack, attach the headlight to the rack by turning it upside down and attaching it to the insertion hole located at the front/bottom of the rack. Then use a 5mm allen wrench to fasten the headlight with the screw and washer.
- Install the cable connector extension cord to the quick plug located on the headlight. Be sure to use your zip ties to fasten the extension cord to the outward-facing loops that are built into the frame.
- Then install the front rack above the front tire. Use the hook, located above the screw holes on the front rack, to secure the wiring harness – so that the wiring harness does not interfere with any turning movements.
- Use a 5mm allen wrench to install the screws/washers to the mounting points located at the front of the bike.
- Install the cable connector extension cord so that it runs through the middle of the suspension fork. Then connect the other quick plugs and you'll be ready to ride!
